It's sad when the brands we love support the groups that hurt us. Charming Charlie is the latest on that list.
On December 3rd, Charming Charlie in Leawood, KS hosted a fundraising day for the anti-women, anti-choice extremist group, Kansans for Life. This organization is an ideologically motivated group that harasses abortion providers like Planned Parenthood Great Plains.
The #GrabYourWallet movement was launched by Trump critics in November. The idea is to shun and boycott businesses that sell Trump family products.
But we suggest grabbing your wallet to promote ALL the progressive issues you care about. Boycott businesses that are anti-choice. Boycott businesses that are anti LGBT+. Boycott all businesses that do not support the black, Hispanic, Muslim or immigrant communities. And more importantly, support local businesses that give back to the diverse communities in which we live.
And remember, bad businesses need to know why you are boycotting them. Give them a call and post on their Facebook pages explaining why they've lost your business.
Times are tough right now and in this upcoming year, we have to be tougher. And we have to be tougher on the brands that we love.
So as a first step, you can call Charming Charlie in Leawood at 913.338.1144 and leave them a review on Facebook. Let them know that supporting anti-choice organizations is #NotSoCharming.
